How to Install

A1 Artificial Grass removes the existing lawn to a depth of 70mm.  We then install around the perimeter of the new lawn area 2" x 2" tantalised timber staked at 1.00 meter intervals.  
We then infill this area with type 1 limestone aggregate to a depth of 50mm and compact firmly using a whacker plate.  We then put 20mm of sharpe sand over the aggregate and again firmly whack down using a whacker plate.  We then fix to the timber frame a road standard heavy contract rated weed membrane.  
We then supply and fit to the timber frame the A1 Artificial Grass chosen by the customer.

Children and Artificial Grass

The reason artificial grass is most suited to kids and pets is because they can play outside all year round without the problem of turning the lawn into mud and bringing it into the home.
All A1 artificial grass ranges can easily cope with the rigours of normal domestic pets. Dog and other animal mess does not effect the grass and can easily be cleaned away with water and a mild detergent.
Children will love it. A1 Artificial grass looks and feels like real grass so they can play outside all the year round. So parents and kids benefit! Say good bye to mud. It is soft won't skin your knees and is suitable all year round.
